My mom would never use the first cell phone I bought for her. That all changed with the Jitterbug.

What was the difference? Dial tone. The Jitterbug simulates dial tone and she knows how to use a phone with dial tone.

Now she never goes anywhere without it - even into the next room. When she slipped on some ice she called a friend to help her get back up. Otherwise she could have frozen to death.
